Activities

Most of our activities occur at the local level. Local groups provide support, social and cultural events, forums, and valuable information.

During the years of our existence, (see An Outline History of AMEA), AMEA has won recognition from the media and government and continues to engage every opportunity to express our views and provide information on issues which concern our community, such as government form classifications, multiethnic/multiracial identity, multiracial parenting, health, education, transracial adoptions, etc. We have testified before Congress and participate in the federal government's Census 2000 Advisory Committee with respect to how our community is affected by not being acknowledged and counted accurately on government forms. We have sought out and received the support of academics and professionals who recognize the social-wide significance of our concerns.
